Paraneoplastic neurologic syndromes (PNSs) are infrequently associated with lymphoma. Manifestations of lymphoma-associated PNS include both central and peripheral nervous systems. We report the case of a patient with Miller-Fisher syndrome (MFS) and a final diagnosis of splenic lymphoma whose neurological symptoms improved only after surgery and chemotherapy. Our report outlines the importance of suspecting a paraneoplastic etiology in patients with MFS and no response to conventional therapies.
